ALSC Notable Children's Books
Bank Street College of Education Best Children's Books of the Year
School Library Journal Top 10 Graphic Novels 2017

This nuanced tale of an observant, sensitive boy finding his own brand of strength is bittersweet and beautifully composed. --Booklist, starred review

Arsenault's symbolic use of color and animated illustrations breathe life into Britt's quirky, beautiful story, which emphasizes that love is the bravest act of all. -- School Library Journal, starred review

Britt writes with perception about the torment of first love and the pain felt by children caught up in a foundering marriage. ... Arsenault excels at capturing characters in the grip of powerful emotions they're trying to conceal. -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

The collaborators behind Jane, the Fox & Me have crafted another poignant picture book-sized graphic novel, this time about alcoholism, family separation, and the meaning of bravery. -- Horn Book, starred review

... a graceful exploration of the frightening fragility and tentative resilience of preteen boys. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

A deceptively complex book -- simple enough for children, but with enough layers to reward repeated readings by adults. -- Foreword Reviews, starred review

An unflinching, delicate portrait of a boy and his broken family. -- Kirkus Reviews

An engagingly thoughtful and thought-provoking read from beginning to end. -- Children's Bookwatch
